How to Make Channa Paneer

  • Boil the milk, squeeze the lime into it and remove from the fire.
  • When the milk is curdled and cool put it in a clean muslin cloth, tie up the ends and hand up to drain out all the whey.
  • Remove from the cloth, spread out evenly on a flat dish with a heavy board (with a weight on it) on top to further drain out the liquid.
  • Then cut into small square pieces.
  • Deep fry in ghee until light brown. Remove.
  • Wash and soak the chana overnight with cooking soda.
  • Next day boil it in fresh water with salt to taste until tender.
  • Grind the onions and ginger to a fine paste.
  • Heat the ghee in a pan and brown the onions and ginger paste.
  • Add the chilli powder, curds and cooked chana.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes, mix well, then take off the fire and sprinkle with garam masala and amchoor.
  • Add the fried paneer, mix and serve garnished with coriander leaves and green chillies.
